Midtown-Palatine NWW Multi-Level Champions


On April 21, 2018, the NWW Multi-Level league played their mini-playoffs. For the championship and the trophy, the 1st and 2nd place teams, Libertyville and Midtown-Palatine, were ready to put into play all they learned throughout the season. Both teams had won 2 of the 4 matches they played against each other during the regular season. Midtown-Palatine slipped past Libertyille for the top spot by winning two additional sets and winning 7-5. This is the 2nd year in a row Midtown-Palatine has won the Multi-Level Mini-Playoffs. Congratulations! Glenbrook and Midtown-Bannockburn vied for 3rd and 4th place. There was a slight eligibility problem, but the matches played on. All in all, it was close. Both teams won 6 sets each. And the game scores came out to 55-54 with GRC winning. But because of the ineligible player, all points went to GRC.

On April 20, 2018, the Northwest Open Championship took place. North Shore 2 was competing against College Park East for the trophy.

Reuse-A-Shoe Program

This entry was posted on Wednesday, 19 September, 2012

You can all be willing participants in the quest to reduce your environmental footprint by bringing your worn out athletic shoes to the clubs who are participating in Nike’s Reuse-A-Shoe program. College Park Athletic Club, Five Seasons Family Sports Club, Glenbrook Racquet Club, North Shore Racquet Club and Northbrook Racquet Club have made the commitment to collect shoes throughout the year. Once collected, shoes that are gently used are separated and given to Share Your Soles, a not-for-profit organization (http://shareyoursoles.org/) and the rest are sent to Nike’s facility in Tennessee where they are shredded and turned in to “Regrind”, which is then used for playgrounds and sports courts.

Be green and bring your shoes in to the clubs mentioned above.  Then go buy another pair of shoes from them!

New Website Overview

This entry was posted on Wednesday, 19 September, 2012

The Chicagoland Indoor Tennis Association (CITA) has embarked on creating our own database.  The following is a quick overview of the site:

Home:  The Home page is the first thing you will see when you enter www.citatennis.net.  You will be in the North/Central Home page.  The Home page provides you with the ability to see the Standings and the Scores  of the matches.  It will give you the Latest News and it will provide you with General Information under Member Services.  Up at the top right hand corner you will see Northwest and Login.  If you click on Northwest, you will be taken to the Northwest Division Home page.  Login is for the Captains of the teams.  The Login allows the captains to input their lineups, scores, players and other administrative tasks.

North/West League:  The North/WestLeague tab lists all the leagues on the left hand side.  If you click on one of the leagues, you will see the Standings and Schedule change accordingly.  Under Standings, you will see from left-to-right, Teams, Percentage, Won, Lost, Weeks and a date (if a match has been played).  The Teams are the Clubs who have a team in the league.  Pct. or Percentage give you the win percentage.  So, if each match is worth a possible 18 points and the team won 10 points out of 18 points, the win percentage will read 55.56%.  Won and Lost are the points won or lost.  It will add up the points from match to match.  Weeks indicate the number of matches each team will play.  In some cases you will see a team play 12 weeks in stead of 13 weeks.  This is due to the Byes.  Lastly, Date of Match will show the points from the match.  If you put your mouse arrow over the box you will see it highlight.  Click on the box and a Score Detail will show up in a separate tab in your browser.

Clubs:  The Chicagoland Indoor Tennis Association’s member clubs are shown on the left hand side.  If you click on one of the clubs, it will provide you with the Club’s address, phone number, web address, directions, schedules for all the teams associated with the club, along with club rosters, and club standings.

News:  Provides you with the Latest News as seen on the Home Page but in a slightly different format.

Forms:  Provides you with the ability to print out the rules in a .pdf format.  There is a scoring sample for Singles matches as well.

Archive Results:  Provides you with information from the previous year in a similar format as the current year.

Rules:  Provides you with our current rules.  Several rules changed this year.  It is always a good idea to review the rules.

Contact:  Provides you with the Executive Director’s contact information.
